Hello all, first post here seems I will be learning a lot about my cichlid tank.

I am in the process of remodeling my tank and want to remove this hollow driftwood piece I bought from PetCo a couple of years back.

Problem is that I have 2 nocturnal catfish in there and I cannot get them out for the life of me. I'm hoping someone could give me suggestions as I desperately want this piece removed from my tank! Thanks if anyone can offer suggestions!

Put it in a large bucket so the cats are still underwater, drop in a cube of bloodworms or whatever their favorite food is, and yank it out quickly when they descend to the bottom of the bucket to feed.

I managed to pull it out in the darkness while one of them was out. I placed the entire thing in a 10 gallon to try and catch the other. the species is spotted raphael, it's amazing how much they hate the light. thanks for your suggestions!
